Getting Crafty

Long story short, as a little girl I did a lot of crafts. My mom set up a table in our garage with everything a crafty kid could ever dream of. I have tried to provide a lot of crafting supplies for my son because he is interested in paints, crayons and all of those fun things. However, last night I realized that there are a lot of crafting supplies that our house is lacking.

I made up this list which includes some things we already arthave and a lot of things I would like to purchase because I think it’s important to feed your child’s creativity. Some of these things seem as if they will be remarkably inexpensive (especially if I start at the dollar store). The game plan is to empty out a storage container that I already have and make it the craft supply box and then only buy as many supplies as I believe will fit.


Craft Supplies:

  • Paper
  • Safety scissors
  • Crayons
  • Coloring books
  • Pencils
  • Stencils
  • Markers
  • Paints
  • Paint brushes
  • Glue
  • Glue sticks
  • Glitter
  • Pom-pom balls
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Foam shapes/letters
  • Rocks (yes, rocks)
  • Play-Doh/clay
  • Old magazines
  • String
  • Beads
  • Sequins
  • Feather
  • Googly eyes
  • Wooden surfaces (bird houses, signs, etc.)

So this is a really long list and I’m sure that there are still more craft supplies that I will end up buying when I set out on this mission. Nonetheless, these seem like the basics to me and like I said most of them seem like they wont cost much. I’m so excited to surprise my son with all of these things and see what he wants to make first.
